These Republicans were selected to chair House committees after Speaker battle delay

After a historic and prolonged battle over the Speakership, House Republicans on Monday moved to wrap up some unfinished organizing business that was put on hold due to opposition to Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) — including picking who will lead key panels.


The House GOP Steering Committee, a panel of around 30 lawmakers consisting of leadership and elected regional representatives that makes selections for most chairmanships and committee assignments, made its choices for chairs of panels that were uncontested in December.


But it put its selections for four key contested chairmanships on hold as a group of hard-line conservatives expressed opposition to McCarthy that threatened to tank his Speaker bid.
